If you spend your working life on the road, for example you drive a bus or coach for a living, your chances of being involved in an accident may be higher than for other drivers. If you do become involved in a road accident whilst driving a bus or coach, you may be left facing significant time out of work due to your injuries, or your vehicle might be off the road.

If you are a bus or coach driver working for a large company with a fleet of vehicles, you may be provided with a replacement vehicle by your employer as soon as you are ready to return to work. But for bus and coach drivers who own their own vehicle, or for employees of smaller firms, not having a bus or coach to drive could leave you unable to earn a living. In a situation like this then our complete accident management service will be able to arrange a like-for-like replacement hire vehicle for you to use whilst your bus or coach is being repaired, or until you source a permanent replacement vehicle.

At Canter, Levin & Berg we will work hard on your behalf so that you receive the compensation you deserve following your bus or coach accident. We have a team of specialist road accident solicitors who deal with the entire spectrum of road accident claims, including bus and coach accident claims. We consider it our job to help you, so make the first step towards sorting out your bus or coach accident claim by calling our team today.

If you have been injured in an accident whilst travelling as a passenger in on a bus or coach, you can find out more about making a claim on our bus and coach passenger accident claims page.

Why should I use Canter Levin & Berg if I've been injured driving a bus or coach?

Our friendly and knowledgeable team will work closely with you to make sure your accident claim is dealt with quickly and professionally. If you are able to return to work as a bus or coach driver after your accident, we will ensure that you have access to a vehicle when you need it, so that you can get on with your work and so that the impact of the accident on your finances is kept to an absolute minimum.

We have solicitors who are members of the Law Society’s Personal Injury Panel – reflecting their expertise when it comes to dealing with injury claims, including those made by bus and coach drivers. As part of your claim, you will receive a medical examination from a doctor to assess the nature and severity of your injuries. We’ll take the medical report produced by this doctor to help us calculate the amount of compensation you are eligible to claim - you can leave the rest to us.

Our solicitors don’t just deal with your compensation claim. We provide a full accident management service that can assist with the everyday issues that can seem so difficult to deal with following an accident, such as sorting out a replacement for the vehicle damaged in your accident. We know that as a driver, this is especially important as you rely on access to your vehicle to make a living.

As part of our bus or coach accident management service we will make sure that:

  • Your vehicle is recovered after the accident, either from the scene or from your drive and taken to a secure location where it can be inspected for damage by a qualified vehicle engineer.

  • In a situation where repairs to your bus or coach are possible, then we will arrange for it to be taken to a specialist garage or body shop where it will be repaired to its pre-accident condition.

  • Whilst your bus or coach is off the road for repairs, or if it was written off after the accident and you haven’t yet sorted out a replacement vehicle, we will provide a like-for-like replacement for you to use.

  • Any expenses you have incurred attending medical examinations as part of your case are included in the compensation claim made by our solicitors.

  • Your insurance is unaffected by your accident and any no-claims bonus you might have built up is kept intact.

  • The earnings you may have lost out on if you are unable to drive for any length of time after your accident are included as part of the money claimed.

  • Physiotherapy and rehabilitation treatment to aid your recovery can be arranged if you require it.
